Gluten Free Fried Chicken

Recipe by JanaBird

The best gluten free version of fried chicken I have tried. It even tastes good cold as leftovers.

Wow, this fried chicken is wonderful! I followed the recipe exactly, except I baked the chicken after coating it instead of frying. This lowered the amount of fat per serving considerably. The crushed Chex coating came out crunchy and really yummy. No one guessed it was gluten free. Thank you JanaBird, for sharing your recipe.
